Pop-up Volunteering: Family Literacy Night
Date: Wednesday, February 7th
Time: 5:00 – 8:00 pm
Location: Princess Elizabeth Public School, 247 Thompson Road
Since 2005, Investing in Children has partnered with the Thames Valley District School Board to provide inquiry based Family Literacy Events to children in grades JK- 3.
Family Literacy Events begin with a story, then the children and their parents or caregivers rotate through a series of 8-10 activities that engage the families in unexpected ways of developing literacy. Each station also includes methods to bring the learning into the home. With inquiry based learning, the students’ questions, ideas and observations are placed at the centre of the learning experience.
Volunteers will assist with all aspects of the program and work with children and their caregivers as they dive into the literacy centres.
Spots are limited so register now.
